Reconnecting to You

April 4, 2016

Through the days of over-booked schedules and passing out once we reach sanctuary we call our beds, we tend to lose ourselves in the process of achieving our goals. That was one of my major fears of getting a real job that gets me out of the house from 7-5, 5 days a week. A real job in a real office with different kinds of people in one building. A real job that would literally suck the life out of me and make me forget who I was. The fear that I would be too tired to think of my dreams and just think of the duties that come with my real job. The fear that I would be too exhausted to reconnect my mind, body, and soul. 

Through my 22 years, I've known a few people who would devote their lives to their job. There was a time when I would see them on a regular basis for coffee or dinner, but as they got their new jobs, I began to see less of them. When I do, they would always look so pale and drained, and all they would do is say how tired they were and how much work their bosses made them do. They would bring everyone down with their exhausted aura's and unmovable dreams of quitting and moving far far away.

We're too exhausted to think of our own lives and just live for someone else's for the next few years; that someone else would most probably be your boss and/or the company you work for. I'm sorry you're going through all that. I truly am. I fully understand that the job pays the bills and we have to do all that we can to survive. But, when was the last time you thought about yourself? When was the last time you thought for yourself?

It's all the matter of strength and perseverance. They say that life must be lived. So go and live it with a clear mind and a free spirit. Despite how tired you are from physically working and mentally thinking about work, in the end, it's up to you to make your own dreams come true, and you're not going to do that when your mind is working around the clock focused on something other than you.

Take a moment of every day or every other day; maybe even a whole weekend, to just be. Think of nothing else but yourself. Pamper yourself. Mediate. Buy yourself some flowers. Give yourself some TLC. And most importantly, remember who you are but doing the things that bring light into your heart. Reconnect your energy on you, your mind, your body, and your soul.

Trust me, it'll be good for you.
